Tune in This Thursday for the 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty Live Reveal!
Live From the State Fair of Texas on the Motor Trend Channel
We’ll be coming to you live from the State Fair of Texas this Thursday for an exclusive live reveal of the 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty. Starting at 11:45 a.m. EDT, we’ll be bringing you live information from the Super Duty team about what’s next for the best-selling pickup lineup in America. We’ll be there to capture every angle, every detail, and every point of interest on the new Super Duty, which is rumored to once again take the torque, payload, and towing crown from its competitors.
We’ve said it a thousand times before, but it’s almost universally understood that the new F-Series Super Duty will feature aluminum bodywork draped over a high-strength steel frame, a construction method that resulted in substantial weight savings for its F-150 little brother. As with the 1/2-ton Ford, expect those weight savings to reinvest themselves into the Super Duty’s payload and towing ratings, which will be further improved thanks to an updated 6.7L Power Stroke V-8 (rumored to produce at least 1000 lb-ft of torque).
The Super Duty is also widely believed to adopt the F-150’s passenger cabin, although those rumors are unconfirmed. If true, the bigger F-Series would receive one of the largest rear seats in the business, although it would abandon the distinctive vertical door handles that have been a Super Duty trademark since 1999.
We’ll know more on Thursday, but if you need to know everything as soon as possible, just join us for the reveal. Tune into the Motor Trend Channel on YouTube Thursday morning and you’ll learn everything in real time before anyone else.
